Summary

Scritta in collaborazione con i Depeche Mode, la biografia abbraccia tutta la carriera di una delle band più longeve della storia, che ha saputo attraversare quattro decenni di musica, dal pop al rock.
Questo libro racconta la storia di un gruppo riservato, e frequentemente malinteso, che ha venduto oltre 50 milioni di dischi in tutto il mondo, e che è stata descritta da Q Magazine come «La band elettronica più popolare che il mondo abbia mai conosciuto».
Il costante successo e l’eccessiva celebrazione che hanno caratterizzato la loro carriera hanno portato con se abuso di droghe, crolli mentali, sbornie colossali e divorzio.
Ancora, fronteggiando tutte queste avversità, i Depeche Mode sono sopravvissuti e hanno continuato a produrre musica acclamata dalla critica e gratificata dal successo commerciale.
Il libro comprende anche i percorsi solisti di Dave Gahan e Martin Gore e i dettagli sulla realizzazione di Delta Machine, il penultimo album.

    Taylor Tippett, known as the flight attendant who leaves encouraging notes on passenger windows, shares how readers can find encouragement and meaning amid the brokenness of this world as they learn to recognize the magic of small moments, the power of everyday kindnesses, and the beauty found in every person's unique story. 
    A few years ago, Taylor Tippett was going through a rough season of life, feeling alone and discouraged, when she had a moment of clarity: everyone needs to know that they are not alone in the midst of their hardships. So, as she sat in the back of a Boeing 737 journaling, she wrote "be kind to yourself" and then hung it on one of the passenger windows. What started as a personal project to uplift others became a viral sensation as she started writing more notes--and #wordsfromthewindowseat was born. 
    Now, in her first book, Taylor shares stories of her travels, daily life, and interactions with people of all kinds, anchoring each chapter around a note she's left on a passenger's window. She offers her unique perspective on how kindness, courage, and being your authentic self can create opportunities to share a little everyday magic and encourage those around you. With charm, inspiration, and plenty of whimsy, Taylor reminds readers that even in the middle of so much darkness and brokenness, it's possible to make a difference and share your unique light.

    An in-depth look at these Cold War–era bombers, in the words of those who flew them—includes photos.   The Vulcan, the second of the three V bombers built to guard the United Kingdom during the Cold War, has become an aviation icon like the Spitfire, its delta shape as instantly recognizable as the howling noise it makes when the engines are opened for takeoff.  Vulcan Boys is the first book about this bomber recounted completely firsthand by the operators themselves. It tells the story of the aircraft from its design conception through the Cold War, when it played out its most important job as Britain’s nuclear deterrent; it also reveals the significant role its bombs and missiles played in liberating the Falkland Islands, for which it gained much celebrity.   These individual accounts detail how hours at a time were spent waiting to be scrambled to defend the country in the event of a third world war, and how pilots’ aggressive skills were honed by carrying out Lone Ranger sorties flying to the United States and westward around the world, and taking part in Giant Voice and Red Flag, competitive exercises against the US Strategic Air Command. The attacks in the Falklands using Shrike missiles are described accurately and in great detail for the first time, including the landing at Rio de Janeiro alongside a vivid account of Black Buck 2. Vulcan Boys is a fascinating and completely authentic read reminding us of the Cold War, how it was fought, and the considerable effort required to prevent all-out nuclear war.

    A collection of wise words on solitude, simplicity, nature, and life at Walden from the leader of the transcendentalist movement.  In excerpts collected here from his most important works, Henry David Thoreau documents his experiences in nature and the wisdom he finds in his explorations of sound, reading, solitude, and other aspects of leading a simple life at Walden. A fearless individualist, Thoreau explored not only poetic naturalism but also a number of ideas that were groundbreaking for his day, including civil disobedience and environmentalism. This introduction to one of America’s great thinkers shows that as an essayist and poet-philosopher Thoreau remains a relevant voice in the never-ending quest of man to understand his place in the natural terrain.

    This true story of a Marine’s experience after Iraq “offers practical advice for veterans and families coping with post-war emotional trauma” (Publishers Weekly).   As America’s longest wars end, hundreds of thousands of veterans and their families struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The Wounds Within follows the case of Marine Lance Cpl. Jeff Lucey, who deployed early in the Iraq War, battled PTSD after returning home, and set his family on a decade-long campaign to reform the Veterans Affairs system and end the stigma around military-related mental health issues. Included in this book is the perspective of Jeff’s psychotherapist, Mark Nickerson, an internationally recognized expert on trauma treatment.   Recounting one family’s story as well as case histories of Nickerson’s veteran clients, The Wounds Within explains PTSD and the methods by which it can be treated. It also explores the challenges and frustrations facing returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan—from belated reforms to overwhelmed military families to civilians who don’t know what to say beyond “Thank you for your service.”   “War is changing, and one of the biggest changes is in our understanding of what it does to veterans. This moving and eye-opening book will be a landmark in our country’s efforts to come to terms with a growing tragedy.” —Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature   “Nickerson’s resilient quest to learn more about PTSD is inspirational, heartfelt and genuine. No blame games, just a positive focus on solutions. The Wounds Within is and will remain timeless.” —Brig. Gen. (ret.) Colleen McGuire, director, US Army Suicide Prevention Task Force, 2008–12

    These are the firsthand memoirs of the late William Albert Tate (W.O, RAF Bomber Command) framed within the factual history of his service career in the Royal Air Force between the years 1938 and 1946, penned by his son. This gripping narrative relays William's firsthand recollections of his time spent as a Japanese Prisoner of War, when he was incarcerated for two years in Rangoon Gaol, after bailing out of his Wellington over Burma. Tales of the harsh brutalities inflicted by his captors and the unsanitary conditions in which he and his fellow captives were held offer a real sense of the everyday realities experienced by Japanese Prisoners of War at this time. Jungle diseases, enforced starvation, sadistic torture tactics and the ever present threat of aerial bombardment all beset these prisoners. William and his son meditate on the legacies of enduring such trials as these in an engaging account of survival against the odds.

    Maverick author Hunter S. Thompson introduced the world to "gonzo journalism" with this cult classic that shot back up the best-seller lists after Thompson's suicide in 2005. No book ever written has more perfectly captured the spirit of the 1960s counterculture. In Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, Raoul Duke (Thompson) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (inspired by a friend of Thompson) are quickly diverted to search for the American dream. Their quest is fueled by nearly every drug imaginable and quickly becomes a surreal experience that blurs the line between reality and fantasy. But there is more to this hilarious tale than reckless behavior-for underneath the hallucinogenic facade is a stinging criticism of American greed and consumerism.
